Vagabones By Raymond Deane

St Mary's Collegiate Church

Thu 12 Sep 2019 (event has already taken place)
8pm
€20/€18

An opera by Raymond Deane in association with Crash Ensemble
Based on the play “Trespasses” by Emma Donoghue

Following the outstanding success of The Return of Ulysses at Kilkenny Arts Festival 2018, Opera Collective Ireland presents the World Premiere of Raymond Deane’s Vagabones. Based on Emma Donoghue’s stage adaption of her 1996 radio play Trespasses, the opera with a libretto by Renate Debrrun is a fictionalization of the judge’s own account of the case of Florence Newton in Youghal – one of only a handful of witch trials that ever took place in Ireland. Set in the small Co Cork town over three days in 1661, the opera works as a moving tale of conflicted human emotions and stratagems, while deftly touching on issues of gender, fundamentalism, imperialism and the clash of cultures.

With a stellar cast of Irish talent, directed by Ben Barnes and the musicians of Crash Ensemble, Vagabones will be a culmination of great writing, superb theater and thrilling music.
